The discrimination between the isotopes of hydrogen in the reaction catalyzed by yeast phosphoglucoisomerase is examined by NMR, as well as by spectrofluorometric or radioisotopic methods. The monodirectional conversion of D-glucose 6-phosphate to D-fructose 6-phosphate displays a lower maximal velocity with D-[2-2H]glucose 6-phosphate than unlabelled(More)
Two new taxoids, 13-deoxo-13 alpha-acetyloxy-7 beta,9 alpha-diacetyl-1,2-dideoxytaxine B[1] and 7 beta-xylosyl-10-deacetyltaxol D [7], were isolated from the stem bark of Taxus baccata cv. stricta. Their structures were elucidated using spectroscopic methods and their bioactivity was evaluated using an in vitro microtubule assembly assay.
Polyclonal antibodies raised against 2'-succinyltaxol-bovine serum albumin (BSA) conjugate were used for the immunodetection of bioactive taxoids in chromatographic fractions of the stem bark extract of Taxus baccata. In addition to taxol, cephalomannine, and baccatin III, two taxoids were isolated and their structures were elucidated as 4 alpha,7(More)
The exchange of protons and deuterons by phosphoglucoisomerase during the single passage conversion of D-[2-13C,1-2H]fructose 6-phosphate in H2O or D-[2-13C]fructose 6-phosphate in D2O to D-[2-13C]glucose 6-phosphate, as coupled with the further generation of 6-phospho-D-[2-13C]gluconate in the presence of excess glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was(More)
Thirty-three cases of spinal cord complications in thoraco-lumbar junction injuries were studied, classified in four groups according to the gravity of the lesion and the clinical and electromyographic neurological signs. An original system of graphic representation was used. The spinal lesion was probably secondary to the interruption of arterial(More)
The fate of D-[2-13C]glucose 6-phosphate exposed to phosphoglucoisomerase (glucose-6-phosphate isomerase, EC 5.3.1.9) in 2H2O was monitored by 13C-n.m.r. spectroscopy. The generation of the anomers of both D-[2-13C]fructose 6-phosphate and D-[2-13C,2-2H]glucose 6-phosphate followed a single-exponential pattern. The rate constant, which was proportional to(More)
